It’s been almost exactly one year since the debut of the LeBron 19, which headlined Nike’s Space Jam: A New Legacy collection. And while we’ve enjoyed plenty of colorways since then, the silhouette’s time is soon coming to an end, as the athlete himself has been seen wearing the upcoming LeBron 20.
Historically, LeBron signings wear a high profile first, with the lows coming soon after. But here the LeBron 20 debuted in the shorter version, flaunting a simple design alongside. The model takes the rounded shape of some predecessors, constructing its upper with a malleable and breathable mesh material. So two Swooshes sit to the side: one is elevated, rising from the shoe towards the heel, while the other sits below, stitched into the background. Elsewhere, leather detailing accentuates both the tongue and the eyes; branding is kept extremely minimal; and the single unit has no visible air units.
Enjoy a quick look at the LeBron 20 here. More details on the shoe’s design are sure to surface soon, so hold on tight while we wait for official word from the brand.
In other news, the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low will be releasing next month.
